An important part of a child’s developing sense of identity is an awareness of their cultural heritage. Our goal with the Joyfully Jewish curriculum is to deepen your child’s appreciation of the Jewish tradition and culture, and to engage the whole family as well! To do so, we will use the most successful tool available: FUN! Joyfully Jewish classes focus on Jewish holidays, traditions, and finding joy in Judaism through story-telling, song, art, and cooking projects.

This class taught by Malka Stover-Kemp, a longtime Kehilla educator extraordinaire. Malka holds a certificate in early childhood education, is wildly excited by the ideas and curiosities of young people, and is passionate about empowering families to deepen their relationship with Jewish life.

Kehilla’s Joyfully Jewish program is for kindergartners and their grown-ups. We meet once a month, on Sundays from 10:00-11:30am at Kehilla Community Synagoguein the back classroom on the main floor of Kehilla. Families will be able to enter directly into the Joyfully Jewish classroom from the entrance on Fairview Avenue, around the corner from Kehilla’s main entrance on Grand Ave.
